Marcus O'Mahoney

Post by skipposal on March 26th 2013, 7:17 pm

Naomi's Irish Potters' website reminded me of this amazing pot that I got from Saltbox Gallery in Helmsley in the North York Moors last year. It's made from incredibly rough, black stoneware and saltglazed. 7.2cm (height) 12.7cm (diameter). Unmarked.

Has he stopped marking his pots or did he just forget on your bowl, Skip?

It's so rough I doubt a mark would show!

I'll try and dig out one of his pots from under the house (not in an an archaeological way you understand) which probably has a mark.

I had an exhibition of his work in the past and someone bought a number of his pots, paid for them and never came back and I have no contact details. Doesn't often happen but what do I do with them?

One of the paid for but not collected items from my Marcus exhibition.

It's a footed dish with wall hanging attached and the glaze has a lustre type appearance so difficult to photograph clearly.

Below are 3 thumbnail images that can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Thinking back to my exhibition of Marcus O'Mahoney's work, I do recall that he had a tendancy more than most to forget to mark his work. Alternatively, he used the "Mike Dodd" method i. e. carefully impress your seal on a pot and then equally carefully cover it with glaze so it can't be seen.

Although Marcus lives in Eire, he does sell in the UK but I don't know of anyone in Germany, who retails British potters these days.

Besides the impressed seal mark above, I do have another of Marcus's pots with an incised mark with the date as shown below:-


It's MOM plus the date 2001 and might be of use to someone compiling this type of information. Embarrassed
